  1. The Winners of the 84th Academy Awards

    Oh Hollywood

    Alright folks, prepare to be nonplussed. The nerdiest moment at this Oscars ceremony was probably when Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow presented an award together and if you squinted you could pretend it was Tony Stark and Pepper Potts. But it also, as TDW points out, had a moment where the Dean from Community made fun of Angelina Jolie, moments after she'd presented his Oscar for writing The Descendants.

  4. CBS Greenlights Show About Nerd Women! Conan O’Brien Is Helping!

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    Well here's something completely unexpected. CBS is creating a comedy pilot from Conan O'Brien's Conaco in association with Warner Bros. Television, for something called Super Fun Night. And guess what? It's about a group of nerdy women. It also stars one of the actresses from Bridesmaids. This could be amazing.

  5. Things We Saw Today: If Disney Princesses Roamed Brooklyn

    Things We Saw Today

    I think I saw these girls standing outside the Music Hall of Williamsburg, waiting to see the Jolly Frogs for a super secret set. Never heard of them? Not surprised, they're so underground they're underwater. (File under: Web Series That Might Have to Happen.) (via Erin Knits, Nerds, Exists)

  6. Oscar-Nominee Melissa McCarthy Will Drink Some Champagne Tonight, “Damnit”!

    And All Was Right With the World

    I think we can officially say that 2011 was Melissa McCarthy's year. I don't mean this to say she'll never be successful again, but if there was ever a time when someone's career took a sharp turn for the amazing (after already being not-too-shabby-at-all), it was last year. Because now the Emmy-winner is a newly-minted Oscar nominee (Best Supporting Actress for Bridesmaids), right alongside the women who created this game-changing role for her -- Best Original Screenplay nominees Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo. This is such a great day for women in comedy, but really, it's a great day for comedy in general.

  7. The 84th Academy Awards Nominations, By Katniss

    Oh Hollywood

    Okay, that title is pure Hunger Games fanaticism, but seriously, when one of the major themes of The Hunger Games is the shallowness and self-pandering nature of pomp and circumstance, it doesn't get more surreal than to see Jennifer Lawrence announcing the Oscar nominations like she was picking random tribute children on Reaping Day. Above, you can see the video, below, a list of the nominees, to remind you of all the movies you intended to see this year and didn't.

  8. Kristen Wiig Said There Won’t Be a Bridesmaids Sequel, So Universal Can Stop Trying to Make One Now

    No. No no no no no no no. no.

    Not one of the people who made Bridesmaids a success last year supported a sequel to the comedy hit, the only saving grace for the idea being the return of every single person from the original. Well, the woman responsible for the movie existing in the first place, Golden Globe nominee Kristen Wiig, has put the nail in the coffin, saying there will not be another matrimonial outing. So, let's please stop throwing around the idea that this will happen, with or without her. Okay? Okay.

  9. Don’t Hold Your Breath for a Bridesmaids Sequel

    Cautiously Optimistic

    The Hollywood Reporter picks apart the reason why we haven't seen much news about a Bridesmaids sequel, despite a 900% return on their investment of $32 million in the film. In a time when plans for a sequel are often announced prior to the release of the previous film, it does seem mysterious that Universal wouldn't be hungry for Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo to combine their powers for a second installment. "We aren't working on that," says Wiig, "Annie and I aren't planning a sequel. We are writing something else."

  10. Amanda’s Year in Review

    Our Adorable Past

    Editor’s Note: We asked Amanda LaPergola, one of our contributing writers, to summarize the major events of the past year. All that we asked was that she complete the assignment before the Christmas holidays. As of press time, we have still not heard from her. However, yesterday a package arrived at The Mary Sue headquarters containing a note from Amanda’s mom (Dear Miss Sue: Please excuse my daughter’s tardiness. She has been too busy telling everyone in her family all about that new My Little Pony show to focus on anything else.) and the following pages.
